Pastor Phil Good on Pastor Phil Good
My favorite quote is: “If you don’t know where you’re going, you might end up somewhere else.” These past years as the senior pastor of MCBC are the first years in my life that I truly have not known where I was going because I am finally beginning to follow God instead of trying to control things myself. My passion is teaching and equipping people of all ages to become fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ. My prayer and my desire is to help people see that there is truly nothing more important in their lives than their personal relationship with God. The journey God has taken me on includes four years of active duty in the United States Air Force, seven years performing with the 553rd PA Air National Guard Band, a BS in Mathematics Secondary Education from Millersville University, a Master of Arts in Ministry, Pastoral Studies from Lancaster Bible College, a Master of Divinity degree from Capital Seminary, nine years as a youth pastor at Salem Evangelical Church of Voganville, PA, and now senior pastor of Mill Creek Bible Church, a truly wonderful community of people. I thank God for His grace and mercy and for providing me with my wonderful wife, Sandi, and two fantastic children, Gillian and Ben.
What breaks your heart?
Seeing saved and unsaved people alike missing out on the joy and peace that is available each and everyday thru Christ Jesus.
I love spending time with my family, especially our vacations at Ocean City, New Jersey. I also enjoy kayaking and kayak fishing (this means fishing from a kayak not fishing for a kayak); photography; soccer, especially European (the Barclays Premier League in England and the Bundesliega in Germany); and finally, listening to music and sleeping on my sofa.
Favorite thing(s) to do?
I love to laugh and to make people laugh. Next to God, laughter truly is the best medicine.
